Herman Cain on Top in Florida In New Poll, But Only Romney Beats Obama

Categories: Politicks
Yesterday we half-wondered if a poll that showed Herman Cain once again leading the GOP pack in Florida was something of an outlier. Well, now a new Quinnipiac poll released this morning and conducted from October 31st to November 7th shows that despite new news of Cain's habit of settling sexual harassment suits, he's still the one to beat in the Sunshine State. Though, only Mitt Romney can beat President Obama.

Here are the numbers from the new Q Poll:

  • Perry - 5 %
  • Gingrich - 17 %
  • Romney - 21%
  • Bachmann - 4%
  • Santorum - 1%
  • Paul - 3%
  • Huntsman - 1%
  • Cain - 27%

Those numbers are pretty similar to yesterday's Rassmussen poll.

If the election came down to just Cain and Romney, Cain would win with 45 percent to Romney's 39 percent.

Though, if Romney were to take on Obama, he'd beat the president in Florida 45 to 42.

Cain would lose to Obama 45 to 41.

No other candidates lead Obama in a head-to-head matchup.

I think the presidential campaign is a pretty big effing deal. You just dont like it because it pits republicans against republicans... but guess what? that's a primary.. they are supposed to be dirty. You guys were laughing your asses off when story after story came out about Obama vs Clinton.... now is our turn

No, its just the incessant poll updates.  Whooptie doo.

Its naive to assume that I'm against the Republican vs. Republican bit since, as you stated, the primaries are coming up.

i follow the same boards I did in 08, Poltico, Herald etc etc. Now everybody on the right wants the media to stop covering the primaries 24/7. The 2008 democratic campaign was up 24/7. Super Delegate count..delegate count. Rumors about each campaign....and yes polls after polls. Live with it dude. You're lucky the democrats are not encouraging to sabotage the open primaries like the republicans did in 08
